Brainwave Cafe, Ultimo

I love chips. I love them in bags, I like them in cans and I like them alongside my burger. I love them covered in sauce, chicken salt and gravy. I love Lay’s, Kettles and Pringles. However, I don’t like Grain Waves. Screw those shoddy imitation chips. I rather go to Brainwave Cafe in Ultimo. […]

As time has passed, my taste in music has changed drastically. Growing up, I listened to whatever my sister was listening to. This consisted mostly of R&B and sad break up songs when boys would dump her (confession: she only really got dumped once and the guy told her he was leaving the country immediately. It […]

Once upon a time, I was a fiend at Super Smash Bros on Nintendo Gamecube. Almost everyone who owned that game thought they were the best as there were very few competitive scenes and all players inflated their egos by demolishing their CPU opponents on the easiest difficulty. And then I got my wake up […]

There are some things that I’ll just never forget. The birth of my nephews. The day I finally conquered the HSC and threw my protective elbow sleeve on a roof. The time I finally caught every single Pokémon in existence (before the dudes at Game Freak decided to release another five hundred to keep me […]

One of my food blogging heroes, Chocolatesuze once dished out the greatest analogy of all time. I’m not going to tell you what we were talking about but this analogy is so good that context isn’t even required: “They’re like oatmeal. No matter what you do with it, it still tastes the same.” That’s the […]

You’re not going to believe this but I’m not very adventurous. My idea of weekend adventure consists of sleeping in past 6 o’clock and delaying my afternoon nap ’til 1 o’clock. The most exciting thing I’ve done recently is putting two scoops of ice cream between two Krispy Kreme donuts and devouring it all within […]

Whenever I have trouble sleeping, I close my eyes and visualise the same thing. I’m a little bit younger, I’m wearing a suit and I’m eagerly awaiting to hear my name called out by the commissioner of the NBA Draft. For those who don’t know, there is an event called the “draft” every year in […]

Sokyo Ramen Pop Up, Pyrmont

I’m always in a state of wanderlust. I dream of watching the cricket at Lords in London. I want to play high stakes poker in Macau. I can visualise downloading torrents at 2,000mb per second in a seedy internet cafe in Seoul. I taste the buttery croissants served to me from a nice French girl […]

There were a lot of things I missed out on growing up in a Chinese household. I never celebrated Christmas with my family or Easter or Thanksgiving. Hell, we never even gathered everyone around the television set to watch the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. I missed out on years of Adriana Lima, Miranda Kerr […]
